UPDATE 1-Brazil growth to pick up once reforms passed -economy minister

(Adds comment from Bolsonaro)

BRASILIA, May 6 (Reuters) - Brazil’s economy will pick up and get back on a sustainable growth path as soon as pension reform is approved, Economy Minister Paulo Guedes said on Monday after holding talks with President Jair Bolsonaro.

Speaking to reporters in Brasilia alongside the president, Guedes said global growth is slowing now that years of central bank stimulus is fading.

Bolsonaro said that in an ideal world the government’s budget would be met in full but recognized that revenues are falling. (Reporting by Marcela Ayres Editing by Phil Berlowitz Writing by Jamie McGeever)
